Eagle Scout Service Project
Saturday, January 26th, 8:30 am
Holy Transfiguration Greek
Orthodox Church, https://maps.app.goo.gl/8jzna

Gabriel Mavromatidis' Eagle Scout Service Project will be for Holy Transfiguration Greek Orthodox Church. The project will be building an outdoor chapel, which includes building an altar table, an icon screen, 2 benches, and a cross. Then the area will be mulched and the path leading up to it. The worksite is at 3431 Trickum Rd, Marietta, GA 30066 on January 26th. Please arrive at 8:30 am and be prepared to work for several hours. Please bring any rakes, shovels, work gloves, wheelbarrows, or screwdrivers that you have available. A Chick-fil-A lunch will be provided with drinks. The area will need to be cleared out before the project date, and the wood will be precut. If you are able to help with either of those items please contact Gabriel. Please let Gabriel know if you are able to come out and help. Direct any questions to Mr. Mavromatidis, 404-729-5605, haralambosm@gmail.com

Troop 465 History Committee

 

The purpose of the Boy Scouts of America, incorporated on February 8, 1910, and chartered by Congress in 1916, is to:

Provide an educational program for boys and young adults to build character.

Train in the responsibilities of participating citizenship.

Develop personal fitness.

How you can get involved:

JOIN as a youth member with Troop 465.

VOLUNTEER as a Troop Committee member or Assistant Scoutmaster

GIVE to 465 Alumni Inc. to support Troop 465's sponsor.

  Serving youth for over 50 years, Troop 465 has had a proud heritage of molding boys into men according to the criteria listed above. Our Scoutmaster Emeritus, George Lingefelt, say's "If you want boys to become leaders, you have to train them and then let them lead", and thus began our "boy-lead troop" mind set. Clay Limbaugh is our current Scoutmaster and passes these skills on. In fact, Scoutmaster Limbaugh is only our 7th Scoutmaster since 1963.

Since 1996, the Troop Sponsor has been 465 Alumni, Inc., dba Friends of Troop 465, a non-profit organization specifically enacted to support Troop 465 both financially and philosophically. Troop 465 has a permanent Scout Hut, on over 3 acres, thanks to the generosity and foresight of 465 Alumni, Inc.

Troop 465 is unique because of the tremendous support from our members and their families. If you would like more information about joining troop 465, please click here.
